Michael Garmash began painting at the age of three in Lugansk, Ukraine, 1969. By age six he started his formal education at the Lugansk Youth Creative Center. Recognizing rare, natural talent, his teachers sent his works to a variety of exhibitions in the then Soviet Union.
An award-winning artist from the onset, Mr. Garmash received first prizes at several juried exhibitions. In 1987, Mr. Garmash began teaching at Lugansk State Fine Art College. From 1989 to 1991, he served in the army where he met his wife and partner, Inessa.
Inessa Garmash has excelled in the arts since early childhood. Proving herself in ballet, gymnastics and music, Ms. Garmash attended classes in all three disciplines and, after graduating from music and ballet school, entered the Lugansk Fine Art School at age fifteen. At seventeen she was accepted as that year’s best undergraduate to the Lugansk State Fine Art School.
Together they create a classic impressionism that remains both beautiful and timeless.
